The Lacquer Legion: Lucky

Hi everyone,
So for March's Lacquer Legion theme is Lucky.
To be honest when I first saw this theme I was stuck. However I've made this design personal by painting what is lucky for me.

Here is the design I came up with:

Little Finger: Nails Inc Elizabeth Street and Rimmel I love Lasting Polish Your Majesty
Ring Finger: Maybelline Color Show Iced Queen and LA Colors Art Deco White
Middle Finger: Max Factor Mini Cool Jade,  LA Colors Art Deco Gold Rush
Pointer: Barry M Bluebrry, and LA Colors Art Deco White

The two numbers (17 and 22) are my lucky numbers. 17 is my birthday and 22 is just a number I like!

The design on my middle finger is 'Om'. I am a Hindu and the 'om' symbol is very important in our religion.  I have the 'om' symbol on a gold necklace which I've have since I was little. I always wear it round my neck (I feel so bare when I don't wear it!). The necklace has a little flower pendant with the 'om' symbol in the middle. During my time in high school we weren't allowed to wear necklaces, but when I had exams I would always wear my necklace (making sure the teachers didn't see it) and I would always pass the exam. For every GCSE exam I did, I wore this necklace and I passed every exam getting the grades I wanted or better! I also wore the necklace last week when I had my driving test and I passed first time!

The horseshoe doesn't have any particular meaning to me personally, but a lot of people I know have them as a good luck charms and I also consider them lucky too!

Here is a closer look:

Overall I really like this design and I think it sums the things I find lucky.

What do you think of my Lucky nail art?
Do you have any good luck charms?
